Prosecuting and Defending Professional Regulation Cases is an essential resource for practitioners advising or representing professionals or institutions involved in regulatory proceedings. This guide equips practitioners with the legal knowledge and profession-specific requirements and context needed to manoeuvre through the regulation process. Matters addressed include registration and licensure requirements, complaints and investigation processes, incapacity and fitness to practise investigations and proceedings, special considerations for sexual abuse cases, discipline and parallel proceedings, penalties, and reinstatement procedures.

Authored by Rebecca Durcan, who practises exclusively in the field of professional regulation and Robin McKechney, whose practice centres around defending professionals, this text insightfully identifies varying facets of the regulation process so that counsel can effectively assist their clients.
